Pros: Sharp, fast af, light weight, IS, SHARP, constant f/2.8
Cons:
plastic body, not metal

I loved the way this lens performed at the last wedding I just shot, and this was the first time I used it. I loved it even more once I started processing. Very, very sharp. Very fast AF. The IS is a nice add on. The image quality is easily comparable to an L and exceeds the 24-70 IMO

My biggest complaint is the cost for a plastic body lens. It's nice that it's light weight, but not for $1000 bucks. I only rented this lens, so now I have to decide whether I will buy it. Overall, it's probably worth the money for the zoom range, sharpness, f/2.8 and IS.
